Time is relative, when you think about it. It’s a bit like money. We all spend time where we choose (also like our money). And although we are all busy; there is always time to be made or found — and spent where it needs to be. However, time is not limitless. And that makes it a very precious commodity.
Sometimes, don’t get me wrong, time is spent where it has to be – we all need to work, and buy groceries, and do certain things on a regular basis that we would prefer not to have to do but that is necessary to our daily life. But for the most part, we can choose to spend our time where we would like to.
In my opinion, time is our greatest treasure and the greatest gift we can give to those around us.
But how much time do we all waste, on a regular basis, doing something we don’t want or need to be doing? And as we spend our time doing these things that are sometimes mindless, often thankless, and always time consuming – how many times have we suddenly realized that we’ve lost time with someone or doing something really important, and that no matter how much we try, we’ll never get back?
Therein lies the lesson. It’s important to use time wisely. None of us know how much time we or those we love have left. If we make a conscious effort to spend our time doing what we love with who we love, we could say that our lives were time well spent.
